Sunset Sons To Release No Bad Days EP October 27

Sunset Sons, a quartet of three Brits and one Aussie, will join the Vagrant roster with the release of their No Bad Days EP on October 27, 2014! The eight-track EP will be the band’s US debut and was recorded in Wales at the legendary Monnow Valley studios with producer James Lewis at the helm. Check out their new single “She Wants” below.

Based in the surfing mecca of Hossegor in Southwestern France, Rory Williams (keys, vocals), Jed Laidlaw (drums), Robin Windram (guitar), and Pete Harper (bass), morphed from full time surfers making music for fun, into a full time band within just a year's time.

The band's sound is communicated loud and clear through "She Wants,” a driving song that lyrically narrates the thematic core of the EP... Girls, "lots of girls, different girls," laughs lead singer Rory. 

Girls aside, the band is still very much centered on surfing, and is "still based in Hossegor,” says Rory. “That was part of the deal. We couldn’t write the songs we do living in, say, London. Hossegor is where we feel relaxed enough to write, where the magic happens. It’s our fairyland. Whatever happens with the music, nothing will stop us surfing.

WATERS Announces New EP, "I Feel Everything" Premieres Today

We are very excited to welcome WATERS to the Vagrant roster! WATERS will release their new EP, It All Might Be OK, on October 14th. Inspired by the growing absence of rock in “alternative rock”, WATERS began writing the 4-track EP which was recorded in LA with Ryan Rabin (Grouplove). Today, you can pre-order the EP on iTunes and instantly get a download of the track “I Feel Everything” which perfectly embodies the sentiment behind the entire EP.

This song came about after listening to alternative rock radio for the first time in ages and recognizing the lack of anything alternative or rock about it,” notes frontman Van Pierszalowski. “Where are those dirty guitars? Where is that frenetic energy? Where are the songs that made us want to start a band in the first place? Most days don’t feel like they’re going to be the best days of your life. Most days are kind of fucked up. And it’s nice to have a sanctuary for those days, and for us—that’s always been rock and roll. ‘I Feel Everything’ is our rally call to get that back.” Stream WATERS’ rally call via SoundCloud below.

After finishing school and coming off of years on the road supporting former music projects, Van decided to live and work in San Francisco, allowing himself to stand still for the first time in ages. The calm gave way to creative restlessness and the result was a new band and a new sound in the form of WATERS. Earlier in the year the band released the single “Got To My Head” which was hailed a “big high five of a song” by Stereogum and a song with “enough youthful sizzle” to make fans eager for new music by BuzzbandsLA. A new full-length is currently in the works, but in the meantime WATERS will support It All Might Be OK on the road throughout the fall including dates with Magic Man, Smallpools, and Cold War Kids. A full list of upcoming tour dates can be found HERE.

It All Might Be OK Track List:
1. Got To My Head
2. I Feel Everything
3. Over It
4. Down Together
